Introducing baby Bing!
Kate Hudson and hubby Matthew Bellamy have given the glossy scandal sheets a wide berth, opting to share the first snap of their newborn son on Twitter instead.
The Muse rocker and proud papa posted a picture of his fiancée, 32, holding the couple's first child, Bingham "Bing" Hawn Bellamy, via Twitter on Sunday.
Captioned "Family life!" the snap shows a relaxed Hudson cradling their 5-week-old son, who appears to be fast asleep for his first photo op.
Hudson, who is also mother to 8-year-old son Ryder with ex husband Chris Robinson, gave birth to Bing in Los Angeles on July 9.
Hudson and Bellamy, 33, met last year at a music festival and announced their engagement in April.
The singer explained the baby's name shortly after his arrival.
"For those wondering, Bingham is my mum's maiden name," Bellamy wrote on Twitter.
"Bing Russell was also Kurt [Russell's] dad. Family connections all around!" Hawn is the surname of Kate's movie-star mother, Goldie Hawn.
He added: "Mum was a warrior, Bing popped out after 4.5 hours of intense pushing!"
Bellamy says the couple decided to debut the wee fella via Twitter, in a bid to shake off paparazzi trailing them for a snap of the new arrival.
"Didn't work!" he wrote on Monday. "Wow, these paps are annoying. Thought we'd tweet pic in hope of paps backing off, didn't work!
"There should be laws protecting minors... Daily mail - expect to hear from lawyers soon."
